Anyone else getting a feeling that large magazines for centerfire semi's may soon become something you need a special permit to buy and own? Firearms capable of using them might be included.

Just saying.

Only if foolishness overcomes common sense.


Silver spurs and gold tequila
keep me hanging on.
Pretty girls and old cantinas
give me shelter from the storm.

Terrorists in France killed 84 people with just a truck . Are rental trucks soon to be a thing of the past? If you have evil intent, you will be able to find a way to express it.

Unless there is a way to curb high profile events like Vegas, the church shooting and Florida then slowly but surely I'm sure that is the end result.

I'm not advocating for gun control.

Stuff like this is a symptom of a sick society.

Not "soon" but some day.

Remember all the fuss about Slidefire stocks? Nobody cares anymore and its only been a few months.

Eventually, they will be a thing of the past. I don't see how not as long as stuff like this continues.

This was voted down just a few years back. In this political climate, I doubt they will try again for a few more.

We're confusing legislation and enforcement.

That's like saying we shouldn't ban illegal immigration because it's so easy to do. We have enforcement problems in the drug war and in the immigration battle. I think we need legislative change regarding how and when people with mental illnesses are able to obtain firearms.

How bad do you think the addiction problem would be if we never banned them and had the war on drugs?

You think enforcement has had zero effect on the drug problem in this country? I agree that enforcement isn't where it needs to be, but to say that it's had zero effect is a strong statement.

Either way, you're still addressing an enforcement problem when the issue at hand is a legislative question.

and when 30 rd mags are banned but people still have them or can easily get them it will also be an enforcement problem

If we use alcohol addiction before and after Prohibition as a model, we would expect addiction to rise somewhat, but the harmful effects of addiction to diminish considerably. In the end, my preference is that the guilty should be the ones who suffer for their failings rather than the innocent.

Would this 19 year old kid have had access to them if they had been banned 5 years ago?

I'm not willing to trade my rights for someone else's false sense of security.

This wasn't a magazine problem and it wasn't a gun problem.

This was a mental health problem. It was made possible by the "Gun Free Zone" problem.

Countries in Europe that have been much more successful in dealing with drug addiction have pretty much decriminalized drug use or made the penalties much less severe. I donít know whether cocaine and heroin should be legal but I think it would be wise to look at the models of other countries that have been more successful in dealing with the issue than our country has.
